Fort Collins, Colorado, because I have an axe to grind with those assholes.

Or Los Alamos, NM, because I am a big fan of irony and presently located there, longing for the sweet release of death.

Igor Jakovsky: PsyLord: Deacon Blue: Washington, D.C. You'd get rid of more politicians that way.

This, a close second is Miami, FL

/will sacrifice Miami just to get rid of the D-bags in South Beach

But then you'd be sacrificing tons of beautiful women. If you want to get rid of d-bags just nuke one of the towns on the jersey shore. You would have to do it in the summer though.


Unfortunately, those women are usually only attracted to rich D-bags. So no loss for me.

/but then, I'm crazy enough to go down fighting
//instead of sacrificing lives in exchange for "peace in our time"


I'd tell them we were nuking a tiny town in central NV, play it up, milk it for all it's worth, then launch the counter-invasion with the entire force of the planet behind it.

/Team Go Down Fighting!

PsyLord: Nem Wan: Captain Picard wouldn't play along with this. When someone threatens to kill many unless you choose one to die, the transfer of responsibility and choice is an illusion. If they carry through with their threat it is their responsibility, and that outcome is probably not what they really want or they would not have contrived the ordeal to begin with.

How about if you do not choose one, the aliens will nuke 10 cities of their choosing?


The only moral choice is to refuse to choose. Accepting the premise of such an evil game would be collaboration.

It would have to be a Southern or farmland city. Of course you want to get the most bang for your buck so that does kind of rule out a lot of them. Perhaps Nashville because I despise country music. Or what's the city with the highest percentage of rednecks?

Seriously? You'd nuke the hat? Really? With the whole united states as a dart board; you'd pick the hat? Why not junk town, dodge city or garden city? I'm actually curious.

ThatBillmanGuy: Connor5151: East St Louis. No one would notice. Hell the state of Illinois forgets to put it on their maps.

This.


I was surprised that it took 100+ posts to mention East St. Louis. For all of the other cities that have been suggested, I can come up with at least one redeeming feature. For East St. Louis, I got nothin'.

It may interest you to know that since the initial use of corbomite more than two of our centuries ago, no attacking vessel has survived the attempt. Death has little meaning to us. If it has none to you then attack us now. We grow annoyed at your foolishness.
 
2012-06-23 04:52:37 PM
Sandy Hook, KY. Not really a city but worth a nuke.
 
2012-06-23 04:52:53 PM
Now that I think about it, El Paso, TX is isolated (4 hrs from Santa Fe, 6 hrs. from Phoenix, 8.5 to San Antonio) and a complete dump as well.

nah,
too many Ecuadorians on main st- no one would care, but the Ecuadorians in equator.
and the fallout would harm the rochelle park bike path

Wilmington, Delaware.

Then I'd ask the aliens for something that would leave a crater with a 150-mile radius.
 
2012-06-23 04:53:44 PM
Barrow, AK. Not very populated and the resulting fallout would only fark up Canada.

Portland, OR

not one person in the entire area is worth saving AND it would increase the average IQ in Oregon

que.guero: Whatever city the alien command center is in...


Denver? that's an idea. Population about 500,000, high altitude, surrounded by mountains. Not much downwind. Use the smallest neutron bomb you can.

Worth putting on the short list.

Waco, Texas, would probably be a decent target as well.

I'm glad Subby eliminated Detroit. It's too close to the heartland of Canada--you'd lose the vineyards of the Niagara escarpment and possibly chunks of Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal. As much as it is hated (Toronto, I mean), it is a necessary evil--too big a price for Canada to pay for saving somebody else's asses.

Off the top of my head, I'd say that you could do worse than Denver or Waco. How about Salt Lake City? The Mormon genealogical records are safe in a mountain vault. It's in a mountain basin, very dry, not a lot of people or industry or agriculture compared to most places. Possibly another short list candidate.
 
2012-06-23 04:54:48 PM
I used to think Austin was safe, but in the last 30 years, I've seen it become a wretched hive and scum and villany. Why stop at one? just rain a shiatload of 'em from border to border to border to border. 'Cept Willie Nelson. But double up on (P)rick Perrys place.

Just one? Where's the fun in that? Nuke all the bits where they talk funny. I'm looking at you, Bahston. You too, New Yawk. How about a nice heap of nuclear winter with your Coke, Atlanta? What's that Minneapolis? I seem to have something against the east coast, don't cha know? Well, in fact I farkin' DO know that I want to nuke you into oblivion! The south, while certainly linguistically impaired, doesn't need nuking. Their perpetual bible thumping has already banished them into the stone age. So I propose we nuke them just for the fun of it. Ditto for anyone who casts aside mankind's accumulated skill at agricultural science and uses the word "organic" with pride when referring to their stunted, manure soaked, vermin infested food. We'll probably cover quite a bit of both coasts with that one.

Aw, hell. Just accidentally the whole thing and be done with it.

Great fun to visit but so full of crazies it distorts the rest of the state.


All the awful places in this country and you go with MADISON?

The locals have always been freaking awesomely hospitable to me anytime I've been there. Plus my brother works for a company there with a freaking tree fort that still manages to make money.

And beer. How can you nuke all that beer.

/my vote is for Gary, Indiana
//just to put it out of its misery already
 
2012-06-23 04:58:32 PM
I find it interesting that not a single person suggested a city with rightward political leanings noting those politics as the reason for the choice, a stark difference from the several rightwingers who want to target "leftists" and "liberals."
